We started with Momentum mid-way through second grade. My daughter was below reading level and was getting discouraged by her grades. Though she enjoyed going, we wanted to get her help before she turned away from school completely. We paired up with Marianne twice a week and by the end of the school year, she was at grade level. She would come home from tutoring chatting animatedly about her time and how wonderful Marianne was (and still is). We couldn't agree more. This year (3rd grade) we discovered my daughter needed glasses and once getting them, her grades have skyrocketed. Now she's reading 4th grade books. Marianne and the staff at Momentum gave my daughter the confidence to learn and push through the trouble before we even knew what the trouble was. Thank you! Even though she doesn't "need" tutoring anymore, the confidence and excitement she shows every Thursday going is priceless and worth every penny!

Another year with Momentum Tutoring continiously supporting my son with homework and his studies in 4th grade, Thanks to Terri, Malorie and everyone at Momentum that makes that special effort every day to help individuals in strengthening their skills in order to better themselves. Momentum offers the ability for students to become more in tune with certain subjects that they may struggle with. This organization has made a huge difference for my son every school year for the last four years as he is now an A and B student/ The feeling of a group effort in accomplishing better grades and a feeling of self worth is exactly what Momentum stands for! We will count on Momentum in assisting us next year as well! Thanks Momentum for making the difference. Jennifer

My son has been attending Momentum Tutoring since the 1st grade. Colin is now a third grader and has made leaps and bounds with regard to his reading and math skills. We are so fortunate and thankful to have the support from Momentum which allows Colin to have the individual one on one time to allow him more thorough training in areas that require more attention than is allotted in the classroom. Thank you for making the difference for us Momentum!

I have had great experiences with Momentum Tutoring two years in a row! When my son was in 8th grade, there was an hour after school before I got off work to pick him up. Momentum had tutoring sessions available on school campus, and a senior in high school not only helped my son with his homework but also got him planning his high school career in order to get into a college he was interested in. The tutor went on to Cal Poly. The following year, as a Freshman in high school, my son fell behind in his honors algebra course. Momentum paired him up with a college student as his tutor and after one month he made a huge improvement. My son started tutoring with a D- in his algebra class and now has a high C. His algebra tutor makes the chore of homework & studying fun, and my son's whole attitude towards his math class has greatly improved. Thank you!!

My son is currently being tutored by Jeremy for Math at Momentem Tutoring. We were extremely worried that John was going to get a D in Math. A D is not a passing grade at the school he attends so if he didn't get a C or better he would have to retake the class. So I began the search for help. I called and I called to find someone that was reasonable to help. I finally got a call from Terri and she had workable rates. John started with one day a week then moved to 2, 40 minute sessions a week. Lord what an improvement. He now has a B in math. My son says that Jeremy (his tutor) is a genious. My son is in high school so he does not participate in a lot of the programs that Momentem offers like the Friday sessions for the kids. I firmly believe that education is the key to a better future and no amount of money should be spared for a better future for a child. With the way things are in the schools now days with the budget cuts and everything else every community should have access to a program of this nature with maybe some funds being given so people less fortunate can participate also. I recommend Momentum Tutoring to anyone and everyone who needs a little extra help.

I can't begin to tell you the impact that Terri and her great staff have had on our lives. My niece (age 8) and two nephews (age 9 and 16) came to live with us after some family issues made it impossible for them to continue living with their parents. The last few years before they came to live with us their attendance at school was abysmal and this sadly affected their education. My niece was entering the 3rd grade when she began tutoring with Momentum. With the help of Terri and Michelle, we realized that 3rd grade just wasn't the right placement. They helped us make the transition back to 2nd grade and have been there every step of the way. When she began the school year she wasn't even reading at a 1st grade level and could not do simple math (2+3). She's now reading above the 2nd grade level and doing well in math and all of her other subjects. She's feeling confident in school and that I attribute to Terri and Michelle. My 9 year old nephew was in a similar situation. He'd missed at least 1/2 of the last two years of school. He was reading well below grade level and didn't know his multiplication tables although he was entering 4th grade. Terri and Jhann have surpassed our wildest dreams and brought him up to grade level and before 2nd semester started. My other nephew, who is a sophomore in high school, was struggling in all of his subjects and now is getting A's and B's. He could not have done this without Terri and Mallory. The most impressive thing about Momentum from my stand point is that the kids really like going! They are eager to go and happy about being there. That is half the battle. Thank you Terri, Michelle, Jhann and Mallory plus all the other staff! We could not have done it without each of you! JoAnn, mother of seven (37, 25, 25, 23, 16, 9, 8)

My Daughter is 7 years old, was struggling with reading when we decided to bring her to Momentum in December of 2010. Since this short period she has had a wonderful tutor!! Her tutor is very attentive to her needs, each day she will ask if there is more we can do. I feel even though I am not there tutoring her I feel very involved. Every time I come in to pick her up her tutor lets me know of her progress. My daughter isn't always super excited to go study but she definitely is excited to go to tutoring. Which is a good thing, she has shown great progress in her confidence level at school, great reports from her teacher and she is know reading in front of the class! Even though I know she still needs some more work, at least I know she's at the right place. Thanks Michelle and Momentum Tutoring:)

Our 12 year old was beginning to struggle in school and needed aditional help. We heard about Momentum and gave it a try. It's been a wonderful experience. Our sons tutor's have been matched to him perfectly. He went from being a "C" student to nothing lower then a "B" and has stayed up at that level. The staff at Momentum care about their students and believe me, our son has responded to that. Scheduling is flexible and the tutoring focus has always been based upon our sons needs, not some schedule. We highly recommend Momentum Tutoring.
